Daniel Farke will be looking to continue the recent change in form after wins against Sheffield United in the league and Brentford in the Carabao Cup.

Bristol City await the Canaries this weekend who are enjoying a good start to the season themselves. The Robins have been buoyed by the goal scoring prowess of striker Bobby Reid.

Farke will have to go without his main striker Nélson Oliveira who remains sidelined due to a groin problem. Grant Hanley returns from being cup-tied and James Maddison is back in training after a problem with his calf.

It's a similar story for Ipswich Town who will be wanting to build on a good win against Bolton.

It's sure to be a much tougher test for McCarthy's men though who travel to Elland Road to face a Leeds team flying high at the top of the table.

However Town find themselves just two points behind Leeds after four straight wins at the start of the season backed up by a convincing display against the struggling Bolton last time out.

McCarthy may have the added boost of having Jonas Knudsen back fit but will still have to cope without Luke Hyam and Adam Webster.
